Top Dog Dies Shaker Blog Hop

Friday, May 15, 2015

Hello and welcome to the Top Dog Dies Shaker Blog Hop! If you are hopping in order, then you should have arrived here from Kymona's blog. If you'd like to start at the beginning, see the full hop list below.






I used one of my favorite TDD dies, Cross Die Set. I just had to include the beautiful intricate cross too, so I layered a gold foiled die cut over a silver foiled die cut. I included gold and silver sequins, and some pearly white seed beads for the "Shake, Shake, Shake" part ;)




It's pretty difficult to photograph foil cardstock, so I think this flat shot is closest to the true colors. Very clean, elegant, and the cross really pops through that window! I sure wish you could all see it IRL!!

I hope you enjoyed my Shaker Card. Your next stop on the hop is the super cool and talented, Jeanne Jachna! Make sure to visit her and leave her some love ;)
